Carrying the load

Lifting the Ball and Chain

The names Taisto Miettinen and Kristiina Haapalainen aren’t household names, but perhaps they should be. The duo are world champions many times over, topping all comers from 2009 to 2013, inclusive, in their sport of choice. You won’t see them at the Olympics, though, because the sport Miettinen and Haapalainen dominated isn’t one which awards gold medals or anything like that. The winning couple receives the woman’s weight in beer. It’s that kind of sport.

Welcome to the Wife Carrying World Championships.
